The South Korean Embassy in Kuwait, in association with the National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL) and the Korean-Arab Society, organized an evening of Korean cultural performances at the Abdulhussain Abdulredha Theater on 20 October.

The event, held under the 11th Korea-Arab Friendship Caravan, was packed with a houseful audience, who sat mesmerized by the performances of the Korean Traditional Dance troupe and the Expression Crew, a B-Boy and Marionette group. Both performances highlighted remarkable facets of traditional Korean culture and history.

The performers, dressed in bright traditional Korean costumes, showcased rhythmic movements and music that are characteristic of South Korean dance and music heritage.  Especially captivating was the marionette performance from the B-Boy group, which delivered a hip-hop-inspired dance performance to narrate an emotional and evocative story. The performers belonged to the National Gugak Center, which was established to preserve and promote traditional Korean performing arts.

NCCAL Assistant Secretary General for Art, Dr. Bader Al-Duweesh, said the musical event was part of the 11th Korean-Arab Friendship Caravan and highlighted the importance of holding cultural exchanges between Kuwait and other countries.

The Korean-Arab Society, a non-profit body, was established in 2008 to promote cooperation and exchange programs between Korea and the Arab world. The society is active in culture, economy, education and science. Al-Duweesh added that the society has been sending friendship convoys to various Arab countries since its establishment.
